Wiki of Mana

The Crystal Desert (Glass Desert in the fan translation) is one of the final areas of Trials of Mana and can only be reached via the use of Flammie. It is only explorable if the main protagonist is Duran or Angela; other main protagonists land in an enclosed room and will be unable to advance. This is one of the places where the heroes can fight Zable Fahr, the Benevodon of Darkness. The Crystal Desert eventually leads into Duran and Angela's final dungeon, Dragonsmaw.
